Texas fertilizer plant explosion

:( I hope everyone in Texas is safe and well after that awful fertilizer plant explosion, I know we have members on here that live there.

I heard what sounded like thunder at the time. It's about 50 miles west of me. I have staff and patients that felt much more than I did. A couple of patients knew people who were involved. It's a sad situation. I pray for all affected by the explosion.
Here is a video of the blast for those who haven't seen it.

I like making things go boom but I think that would have cause another accident if I had been there. Holy crap that was big boom.

Company was storing 540,000 lbs of ammonium nitrate and another 110.000 lbs of liquid ammonia....
And guess what it wasn't on the EPA data logs as being stored. Firefighters had NO clue!
Can you say BIG bomb and a BIGGER lawsuit?
